This page contains three videos related to the CNN special, The Last Heart Attack with Dr. Sanjay Gupta that first aired in late August of 2011.
- The first video is a 4-minute segment during which Dr. Gupta is being interviewed by Ali Velshi, a co-host of American Morning on CNN. Sanjay makes it very clear to Ali in this video that he completely “gets it” after working for months to produce “The Last Heart Attack Special.
- The second video is just two minutes and features Dr. Esselstyn and one of his patients who just said NO to surgery and proceeded to reverse her heart disease with parsnips, greens and sweet potatoes.
- Finally, the entire 40-minute special with Dr. Sanjay Gupta. It features President Clinton and Dr. Esselstyn and compares two treatment regimens: Open hearth surgery or eating whole plants. Watch the video and then decide which option is best for you.
